The Eventbrite website had crashed many times no matter how the person handled the ticket selling process.
Getting tickets only RELIED ONLY ON HOW FAST YOUR INTERNET SPEED WAS.
There was no time-zone fairness, because barely anyone LIVING in Florida could recive tickets!
I personally live in Tampa FL, only an hour away from Orlando. For all of 3 batches we had waited an hour beforehand practicing our clicking and refreshing skills. None of that mattered because the Eventbrite Website could not handle the amount of people trying to purchase tickets.
On all three batches we had chosen two tickets and pressed order now within 3 seconds.
The Eventbrite website told me that great minds think alike. Then it had said the tickets are unavailable.
This process didn't work and was completely unfair.
Eventbrite had no means of Vercaptcha, and proof is surfacing on reddit that people DDoS'ed the site: http://i.imgur.com/PnowMMB.png
Also, the orange county convention center can handel WAY more that 7,500 people. Exact infromation on how massive the convention center is can be found here: http://www.occc.net/pdf/mm_floorplans.pdf (From the convention centers official website) We agree that cons are better when small, but theres still plenty of room to seel additional tickets without overpopulating the experience!
